    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview can be intimidating to newer candidates getting into the working world. It was 6 senior managers and myself in a room. They were all very friendly and professional. They took turns asking basic questions about my knowledge and several behavioral questions. It lasted about an hour and left feeling good about my chances of being employed.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied through Indeed.com and received an email back from a Hiring Manager. I drove from Raleigh to Washington D.C. and did a panel interview with two other engineers and a 1:1 with the project manager. The initial interview was for a Systems Engineering role using a software tool called "Kennedy-Carter." After two weeks I received notice that the position had been filled, but that there was another opening with another team in the same division. Drove back to Washington, D.C. and had a face-to-face with the two leaders of this second team. No specific problem-solution questions, all behavioral and historical questions. They were looking to gauge my intelligence and cultural fit. About one week later, I received an offer letter. Went on to have a nearly 5-year career on that team.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe in detail the algorithms you have implemented and/or the research you have performed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was unemployed at the time and had been for several months, so I accepted the initial offer, which was more than I had made in the past.
